"This is so fucking stupid and messed up" Chloe says, shaking her head at me.
"No it's not, it's completely necessary" I tell her, fixing up my hair quickly before turning to her.
"It really isn't"
"Well, I have a date to get to so that I can prove a point to my oblivious boyfriend, so I'll see you tonight" I say, walking towards the door. I even wore a dress, and did my hair all nice. I don't like losing arguments.
I was still very pissed at Luke, and I stayed on the lounge despite his various apologies and pleas, so my neck was a little stiff, too, and I was very worried about Luke going out with Titany (the nickname had grown on me a lot). I knew he wouldn't do anything stupid, but I wasn't so sure about her.
I drive towards the coffee shop I was meant to meet Kenny at, and I recognised him from a picture Luke had shown me once almost as soon as I got out of the car.
"Hi, I'm Katie" I say, holding my hand out to him and he shakes it.
"Kenny" He says, pulling my hand up to his mouth and kissing it softly and I force out a giggle, even though my stomach is churning. "Shall we sit?" He asks and I nod, sitting down and preparing myself for the next hour or so.
"How'd your fucked up date go?" Calum asks as soon as I walk inside.
"Why? What happened?"
"Katie was right! That's what happened! Now I'm either going to have to lie to her or admit I was wrong and I'm not sure what is worse"
"You are both royally fucked up in the head" Calum sighs in disbelief. "What happened?"
"She was being really touchy-feely, and that was fine, I could deal with that but then she tried to kiss me!"
"What'd you do?"
"I dodged it and ran away" I say.
"You can't tell Katie that"
"I know!" I exclaim. "God, I hope Kenny didn't try anything on her. I shouldn't have let this go this far, I should've just given it up and not gone today"
"It's Katie, she can take care of herself. Chloe told me that she knocked out 2 guys in one night once because they kept trying to buy her drinks"
"But you know what Kenny is like. He's a manipulative bastard, and he has never taken no for an answer" I huff, sitting down on the lounge next to Calum.
"Don't worry about it, if he did anything we will just beat his arse, he may act tough around girls but he couldn't take a punch if his life depended on it"
"Right. Yeah. Okay, yeah" I nod, grabbing a playstation controller from the coffee table and waiting for Calum to finish doing his mission before we play Skate 3 together until I get a phone call from Katie.
"Is it her?"
"Yeah" I nod, looking at the caller ID with a picture of her on the screen.
"Stay cool, act like nothing happened" Calum advises and I nod once again, before answering.
"Hey, what are you up to?"
"Just playing playstation with Cal"
